Woohoo! I did it, I surely did! And I'm sure you might be wondering, what exactly did she do?! *Smile!* Last year, my motto of using what I have worked so well that I decided to carry it over to this year with a bit of a twist - "Use what's on the shelf in two thousand and twelve!" It kinda sorta rhymes, hee hee! But most importantly, I took inventory of my vast SU stamp sets that I've collected over the years and realized that most had not seen ink at all. And that was so sad to me! So I made a decision to pull 6-8 stamp sets a month and see how far I get with that stack pulled at random. I will also try to showcase each card and I'm going to try hard to stick to the plan ... and I took a picture! :)
But first, I thought I share with you the card I made using one of those 'forgotten sets' - the uber adorable Hedgehog Happiness. I kept this card pretty simple so I could follow the SC367 sketch over on Splitcoast. I also found a good use for the MME Lost and Found Union Square mat stack I had on hand - I have a hard time using this color scheme but new that I wanted to pull from the rich colors of the papers. One of the things I do need to learn - hopefully this year! - is to fill in the white spaces. I actually love it - I'm a clean and crisp kinda gal, but somehow it always looks like my images are just floating about, ROFL! So, that's a technique I'll have to practice.
Here's the card front!
Sneaky peaky side view!
And the inside view!
Hmmm, which one will be next?! :)
And that's about it! Here's my monthly stack up ..... it's a true cache of wooden yumminess, dusted off and ready to play!
